Hello fellow Steemians,

I hope you are all having a great day! :) As usually, I am here with my daily photo challenge where you can submit your personal images from your travels to Prague and other locations in the Czech Republic in the comment section below.

The best 15 entries of the day will get my upvote. I will then pick the absolute winner of the day from these 15 photos. The winning photo will be awarded with a bigger upvote and it will also be featured as the cover image for the challenge post the next day to give the author of the winning shot some more exposure and publicity.

Don’t forget to add a short background story for your entry with at least 30 words and let me just remind you one more time that only personal images will be accepted in the challenge.

There were many great entries submitted in the yesterday Prague/Czech Republic photo challenge and I had a hard time picking the best one. After a deliberate consideration, however, I decided to choose the following entry by @phortun:

Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - the most dominant landmark of the little Silesian village of Chuchelna. Home to just some 1,300 people, the village is located very close to the Czech - Polish border in the Moravian - Silesian Region of the Czech Republic.

Thanks a lot for featuring my photo.

Thank you so much for featuring my photo Tomas! :)

Today, I am coming with this image of a church found in the historic center of Krnov. Located at the foothills of the Jeseniky Mountains in the Moravian - Silesian Region of the Czech Republic, the town of Krnov is home to about 24,000 people and it boasts numerous impressive pieces of architecture.

Streets of Prague

PRague_Streets_New_01_m.jpg

The cityscapes, the grand buildings with unique architecture, the famous pieces of art - those are the first things we care about usually. But when we have the time to get tired of those - then it's more about our personal view. Do we feel we saw it all? Do we want to go deeper?

To me a place is also a setting. For movies, for dramas, but also for simply living, for getting connected to the local atmosphere. Some prefer bars or shopping centers. I prefer the streets. And sometimes at night I can even feel carried back in time - a century or two... or more. There is always something mysterious about each night. The streets are a perfect setting for us to sense it.

Excursions around the Old Town traditionally have the deepest impression, because every guest of Prague is attracted by historical valuable objects, lively spaces of Romanesque and Gothic houses, romantic interlacing of narrow streets. Undoubtedly, the most popular sight of the Old Town is the Old Town Hall with chimes. Every hour in front of the town hall tower crowds of tourists gather to see how the figures of the apostles and other mechanical parts of the chimes move.
A large number of Gothic churches and a number of majestic houses and palaces testify to the fact that this part of Prague has long been the heart of the city.

Queen Anne's Summercastle, part of the Prague Castle complex, view from the East
P1090083.JPG
Summercastle was built between 1538 and 1565. The most interesting use was during the reign of Emperor Rudolf II. 1576 - 1611. Part of Rudolf's art collection here was placed.
Do you see two holes in the base of a summerhouse? There was the first ZOO in Prague! Rudolph II. received from the Persian Ruler a living lion as agift. Here the lion was breeded. According to rumor, lion died on the same day as Emperor Rudolf.

I miss those days that I stayed at Czech. I took some satisfactory photos. The night view of Prague is very charming. To get the blue sky background and asteriated light I waited for streetlights on and took the picture with slow shutter and small aperture. The picture is night view of Charles Bridge and Prague Castle.

The view of Loket featured in Casino Royale. The camera actually pans down from behind the pillar, but I wasn't quite that tall! 😉 While taking the photo I was standing next to the Column of the Holy Trinity that was visible in the scene with Bond and Vesper arriving to the village.

Historic Center of Cesky Krumlov
What a charming town to visit! We had a wonderful time wondering this beautiful and historic town. For a small town it offers many things to see. This town has a lot to offer. There are many historic sights to see, places to eat and a wonderland for photographers. So many sights within such a small area.

St. Vitus Cathedral
Truly magnificent cathedral overlooking the city, part of the prague castle complex. Amazingly spectacular cathedral located in the middle of Prague Castle. Wonderful interior and towering spires. Gothic masterpiece. If you appreciate stained glass and architecture this is a must see. Full of architectural riches and vey well maintained I have to dare say that it’s one of the finest cathedrals in Europe.

The photo of the mill wheel on the Devil's Stream connecting Mala Strana to the Kampa Island, I took it in the evening from the Charles Bridge. Illuminata is very impressive and beautiful.

Saint Barbara's Church
The place around the Cathedral is beautiful. A beautiful grove stands behind and is seen from above the wall. It has a beautiful view of the city from above the wall too. On the outside, the Cathedral is very beautiful.

Point of passage for me, nice walk, flower gardens at the top of the hill and incredible views of the entire metropolis. the castle is also reachable on foot which is very practical.Very beautiful view of the city, and very pleasant walk. It's really worth it!

Dancing House
The building is iconic for Prague and you should totally see it! Make a quick stop to the building, admire it and take a few pictures! You can also read more about the architects and how it was build, it was interesting for me. TIP: There is a rooftop bar with a view, however it is considered pricey, and there are better places to take pictures of the town!

Beautiful view from Letna Park
The best part has to be the stunning view over the city and the surrounding park. You go to this entry place definitely for the view. It offers a panoramic view of Prague and it doesn't hurt that beer is cheap. Just be sure to secure nice seats for the perfect experience.

Best view from Petrin Tower
You must climb these stairs to get the very best views of Prague. It feels totally strong and safe and well maintained. The flows up and down stairs are separate so no bumping. There are some wide stopping and viewing places on the way. Pictures can be taken without glass obstruction you must do this.

Prague is such a unique and stunning city. The old town square is huge. Stand in middle and look around every corner there’s beauty surrounding you. It’s buzzing with tourists from morning to night but big enough spaces for all to enjoy and take it all in. This square is one of the most beautiful in the world. Every where you look you see something amazing.

"Little Prague Venice"

Beautiful channel in Prague that really reminds me of Venice. I just read that it's possible to take tours by boat on the channel. Unfortunately I didn't do that back then, but enjoyed the view from the bridge greatly. Next time :-)

Castle of prague
The Prague Castle or Czech prazhsky hrad is probably the most visited sight of the Czech city. Therefore, in my opinion, it is a must for visitors to Prague. This imposing monument is an interesting stylistic composition, due to the influence of different architectural epochs.
